Plastic innovation has also created the problem of plastic waste - largely becoming one of the greatest problems of the 21st century.
Creating a circular plastic economy is one of the best solutions to plastic pollution.
How can more companies get involved in the fight to end plastic waste? There are already so many packaging, sorting, and plastic collection companies, but what else can ignite change?
Plastic is a great invention and we do need it, but perhaps it’s time to start finding alternative packaging materials that are not as harmful as plastic.
AI could be the key to tackling the recycling crisis. These innovative startups are using robotics to sort and collect valuable materials.
Due to its destructive nature, both consumers and companies are looking for new ways to recycle and reuse plastic.
If nothing is done soon to stop the onslaught of plastic pollution, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050.
